Faculty » Jane Hall
Jane Hall learned to quilt while living in Hawaii, making a queen-sized bed quilt as her first quilt, and hasn’t stopped since. She has lectured and taught quilt making for guilds and quilt conferences in the United States and abroad for more than 25 years. She is a Certified Quilt Teacher, Judge and Appraiser for both antique and contemporary quilts.
Her award-winning quilts have been exhibited nationally and internationally in quilt shows, juried fiber and multi-media exhibitions and galleries. Her quilts are included in public and private collections and in the American Quilter's Society Museum in Paducah, KY.
She has a particular interest in foundation work, and has explored methods for using foundation techniques in all kinds of piecing, traditional, innovative, as well as for designs not usually considered for foundation piecing. Her works have been published in many magazines and books and she has co-authored six books on foundation piecing with Dixie Haywood, with their newest one, Fresh Pineapple Possibilities, coming in Fall '13.
Jane is intrigued by the interaction of colors in fabrics and the graphics of quilt designs, especially the geometry of patterns such as Mariner’s Compass, Log Cabin and Pineapples. She works most often with traditional patterns, using innovative sets and coloration, taking a fresh approach to the designs. The Chroma series of Pineapple colorwash designs is her most recent work.
